    um...

    It goes from the + battery terminal to the starter solenoid!!...there are 2 big red wires with fusible links in them that go behind it too,on the same stud... :crazy:

    some advice...

    You will probably have to drop the starter to get at that stud on the solenoid!--and that "stud" is actually a carriage head brass bolt,anchored only by the plastic cap on the solenoid--it cracks the cap REAL easy if your not VERY careful!..be forewarned!-

    -I only take them off if I have too,and make sure I have a spare solenoid,or at least the plastic cap hanging around before I do!....thats one of the things I hate about chevy's--where they PUT the + cable on the starter(hard to get at if you need to "jump" the solenoid--and the fact you have to pull the starter to change it,and how easy the cap can crack... :crazy:
